Energy Globe Award Lower Austria, category "air"

Roman Myna, Rupert Wimmer (both wood technology), Falk Liebner (chemistry of renewable resources), Stephan Frömel-Frybort (wood competence center), and the company General Laser, received the this year’s Energy Globe Award Lower Austria, category "air", for their project "Dustfree- the new tribowood-technology for less wood-fine dust".

Fine wood dust constitutes a massive health risk to human beings. With the BOKU-patented technology fine wood dust can be reduced, by generating coarse dust particles from the fine ones. In addition, the energy consumption is lowered as well. The Energy Globe Award was founded in 1999 by the Austrian energy pioneer Wolfgang Neumann, and is today the worlds most renowned environmental award.
